How to Prove You Know Something via Copious Citation of Sources

Citation is a word that is thrown around the internet a lot nowadays. I can touch on this subject a little because I’m guilty of it myself.

But even still, there are specific fields or topics where you really need to cite external sources that you find on the web about yourself or your company.

The types of citations I’m talking about are website citations and department citations. A website citation to an independent, third-party site about your notable life events.

It can be a powerful way to prove you were in the area when something significant occurred in your past. For example, suppose I mentioned that I was in the World Series just last week.

In that case, I can point to a news outlet about my memorable experience. This will show me I was in the city when the ballgame occurred.

If done well and done often, citation building can get the ballpark coverage you need to be an essential authority in your field.

A citation from authorities usually shows people who know who you are and have seen. Your recent interaction with them that you are a bright and not some random hipster is looking for a cause.

Citation building also links back to your own website. Thanks to citations, even your competitors that don’t have as much authority can start to show up in the results because they know that you’ve got a footprint.

Citation building is a numbers game. It applies equally well in the local SEO space as it does on the national or international level.


Sentence Starters are a Great Way to Improve Vocabulary.

They are also a great way to make you sound more intelligent in conversations.

When starting a conversation, it is vital to make your tone of voice match your values.

A happy, reassuring tone of voice should work here. There are three ways to do this:

Using an established sentence format.

Using a fictional example. Using a sentence format that looks easy but is actually more complex will sometimes sound more confident and competent.

Using a real example. 

To make your illustration more believable, you can either look up the definition or a similar version in a dictionary. This type of example works best when you explain something over the phone or use video instead of talking on the phone.
